It would scorn that wo do not

statesman out of sorvico, with
monuH to go and stiiy whoro ho
pleases, como to visit tho islands.
Moreover, n statesman to whoso
ollioial attention, whilo holding
tho chief diplomatic position in
the country with which wo havo
tho most iutimato rotations, was
brought ono of the greatest crises
tint over arose in Hawaii. Forth
with tho air rings with cou
jootures about tho object of his visit.
Huh lie como to estimate tho prac
ticality of annexation, in tho
ovont of his party's winning tho
otacutivo as wrll as tho legislative
control in his nation, which sooms
probublo ? Or is ho hero to pro
mote a cablo scheme ? Even if
his erratid has any great political
or commercial significance, Mr.
Fostor is hardly likely to lot it
out, at least for a while soy, uu
til he recovers his land legs after
tho sea voyago. It may bo
taken for certain, howovor, that
he is not auothor "Paramount"
agent of tho administration that
has yet four months to run in tho
United States. It is tho humble
opiniou of tho Bulletin that tho
visit of so ablo ami distinguished
an American statosmou to Hawaii
cannot but have results of tho ut
most importance to tho futuro re
lations of this country with tho
United States. Particularly, when
taken in connection with tho pro
bability ahead' noted of his
party's early coming to rule that
mighty nation. Yot this does not
lined that ho should boar a
public commission. It goes
without saying, in viow of
Mr. Foster's great esperienco and
fiuo public record, that of all tho
publio mon who havo over come
hero from tho United States, none
r.Hii niako a more corrfot onliinato
of the Hawaiian situation, or form
a inoie intelligent opinion of the
true international relations of the
two countries, than cau he. Neith
or mere appearances presented to
his eye nor any extravagant talk
of factions held to his oar will bo
likely to deceive a diplomat
of his long tiaiued perception.
Mr. Foster will soon size up tho
local Asiatic question horo, in its
cross-woven relation to our lead
ing industry and to annexation
tho cardinal point of doctrine in
tho constitution of this republic.
While thus far wo havo no riht
to assume that Mr. Foster has
come here for any other purpose
than rest and change of olimato,
wo may be allowed to feel no
small amount of gratification that
Buch a man is a sojourner in our
fair isles, for the fund of exact
information and accurate opinion
which he is certain to carry hence.
It would be promaturo now, how
ovor, to forecast results upon that
score. Lot us bo immediately
glad to realize that tho islands
havo attractions for so aminent a
visitor, all tho more so that his
example is not unlikely to prove
contagious when his opinious,
which aro bound to bo widoly
sought and candidly given, upon
our olimato aad health and pleas
ure resources shall hao been
In looking at labor immigration
it should always bo romombered
that there is a difference in the
conditions of Chinese and Japa
nese importations. All Ohinoso
labor immigrants havo to ongage
to renow thoir contracts at their
expiration or olso leave tho coun
try. This is a precaution against
the disastrous competition of
Oriental labor, whou released from
contract sorvico, with both skilled
and unskilled labor of nationali
tiod forming tho citizonship of tho
country. But it is n precaution
that cannot bo used against
tho Japanese, owing to tho treaty
relations between this country
and Japan. This is doubtless tho
motivo of tho Govornmout in
slacking down on Japaneso immi
gration whilo increasing tho in
troduction of Chinese. Thero
Bhould not bo any fooling of n
slight on tho part of tho Jnpaucso
authorities on this score. Tho
iutornal economy of this country
must not bo regulated from Japan.
That would bo too extrcmo an
exaction of international friend
ship, besides a Hying in tho faco of
tho recognizedAmerican patronage
of this country. Leaving asido
tho question of obtaining supplies
of labor other than Oriental, in
tho particular matter hoio dis
cussed tho Government's policy is
certainly ono to bo approved by
tho peoplo at large. Whon all I
this is said, howovor, tho fact re
mains that tho Government has
not by any means cut off Japanese
immigration. And the Japaneso
who come now aro likely to bo of
tho best class obtainable, owing to
tho high character of some of tho
companies in rivalry for supply
ing the demand.
Indications aro that the Arme
nian revolutionary committee will
shortly forco ovouts to such an
issue that intervention of tho Pow
ers, whether harmonious or other
wise, will bo inovitablo. Tho des
peration of tho Armenians has an
illustration in the reported ghast
ly sentiment, as expressed by ono
of thomsolves, that tho sacrifice
of thousands of lives consequent
on thoir nttack upon the Ottoman
bauk was nono too dear, for its
results in bringing thoir cause
homo to tho outside world.
According to tho latest nowB the
insurgent general Macoo is much
too smart a tactician for tho
Spanish commander to circum
vent. 'Spain's determination to
cut things short in Cuba is get
ting to be an old btory, and tho
question seems to bo how long
until tho rebels carry tho war
right into Havana.
Consul General Shimamura is
to bo congratulated upon tho
princely manner in which ho is
today doing honor to tho natal '
day of his illustrious sovereign.
Japan has never shown anything
but friendship toward Hawaii,
auJitiB thereforo becoming for
tho citizons of Honolulu to join
in honoring the event.
Poor Dr. Tanner, ono of tho
most noted cranks of modern

There is a certain highly
respected citizen of Honolulu
who has a fondness for rice
pudding. He has indulged
this fondness to such an in
ordinate degree that he has for
years indulged in a cold rice
pudding upon his return home
from his lodge. When he was
going to be out more than
usually late he would tell his '
ffood wjf an(j the cod pud

night he was kept out later
than usual at a iWasonic ban-'

and ate the contents. The J

The way he did it was to
go lo the Hawaiian Hardware
Company's store and order
one of their recently imported j
Enameled Iron Portable
Bath Tubs sent home. His
good wife was so pleased that
she forgave him on the spot.
These bath tubs must be seen
to be appreciated. They are
the handsomest yet put on the
market and they are not very
expensive. Being raised from
the floor on legs like a stove ;
no moisture can accumulate
underneath to attract cock
roaches and beetles. These
tubs are provided with hand
some nickel-plated fittings.
To go with them we have
imported specially some nickel
plated double bath cocks for
hot and cold water with corn-
soap trays. The
beauty f thl'S n0Velty is that
the not and cold water runs
out of the same faucet, either
separately or together, and
there is no danger of scalding
your toes as so often happens
in turning on the hot water

Tho holidays arc approach
ing at tho rate of a day every
twenty-four hours; ami this is
tho month when children fix
thoir attention on literature in
which Santa Claus takes a
leading part, and wives and
daughters allow theirs to
dwell on the old gentleman's
purse. An old lady was once
asked the age when girls gavo
up playing with dolls and tho
answer carno back, "When
they havo children of their
own." So it is about Santa
Claus; children givo him up
as tho mythical when they are
old enough to realize a flesh
and blood Santa Claus in their
father. If it happens to be a
girl sho will cling to tho old
gentleman until she happens
to win a Santa Claus who
will be her individual property.
It is with theso flesh and
blood Santa Clauses that wo
wish to whisper. On the
Australia which arrived last
week, thero were several lare
cases of solid silver ware for
us. In turn wo will dispose
of it to Santa Claus. Wo will
havo no difficulty in doing this
as the assortment is from four
of the largest and best factories
in tho United States. You
will havo an opportunity to
view tho goods later.
